Product Description

Product Description

Follow four young dancers in their first semester at the Vancouver International Ballet Academy while they work toward careers as professional ballet dancers.

Kaitlyn, Taylor, Alexandra, and Julian are all students at the Vancouver International Ballet Academy where ballet and drama dominate everyone’s lives.

Kaitlyn was the star at her old school, but the competition at VIBA is fierce and her reputation as a prodigy is threatened. About to turn 15 years old, Taylor isa bit of a scatterbrain. She’s got a lot of potential, but the teachers are frustrated with her lack of confidence, and her troubles at school arent helping. Alexandra has done everything right, and she’s determined to become a dancer, but the teachers at VIBA seem to be against helping her. Julian, at 15, loves dance, so going to a professional ballet school seems fun even if it does take over every aspect of his life.

It’s only their first semester, but these four students will have to push themselves to their limits to make it through their first major performance, The Nutcracker, and continue on the path to becoming professional dancers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dialogue-heavy 7 April 2014
By Jessica
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A potentially good plot, but the characters are incredibly stereotyped (there's the stupid skinny girl, the eating-disordered girl that the teachers all pick on, the new girl, the new boy, the gay boy, the mean teacher...). There's not much aside from dialogue here, and, like, waaay too many of the, like, characters talk in this totally moronic way. I mean, like, it's SO annoying because you can't, like, understand what they're even saying. For, like, an entire chapter. The author is obviously trying to emulate how a stupid teenage girl speaks, but lays it on far too thick.
This book could be good, but just isn't well-written. Too bitty, too many characters that have no important role to play other than say something else unkind which could just have easily been said by the chief mean girl. I assume there's a sequel as the book basically just stops with no closure whatsoever, which is no way at all to end a book that's sold alone.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a muchness towards the end 24 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wanted to read a book a little different to my normal genre and love anything to do with ballet. However, I found this a little tedious and is more for very young people to read. Not one of my favourites I'm afraid
